Skip to comments.New Concealed Carry Report For 2020: 19.48 Million Permit Holders (Truncated Title)
Posted on 10/03/2020 4:50:58 PM PDT by Towed_Jumper
During President Trumps administration, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 19.48 million a 34% increase over 2016. However, while gun sales have set records in 2020, the growth in concealed handgun permits has slowed as many states shutdown their issuance of new permits. Unlike gun ownership surveys that may be affected by peoples unwillingness to answer personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really hard data that we have. Seventeen states no longer provide data on all the people who are legally carrying a concealed handgun because people in those states no longer need a permit to carry.

Hi PROCON, I thought your Bang List might be interested in this.
Basically, one in about seventeen people have the cow permit. This number does not include places that do not require a permit
As an aside, there is an indoor pistol shooting range near me. Its open to the public. Awhile back I wandered into the place, just to see what was going on. Every person on the firing line was a woman. Every last one of them.
And they did so by a 9-0 vote.
That shows ya how much contempt the state's officials have for 2A.
In Arkansas, an Open Carry State, one must still have a permit to carry concealed.
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to infringes upon or victories for the 2nd Amendment.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.

Hmmm... Yellow state...
Guam is like that. But the crime is so low almost nobody carries at all.
19 million permitted carry people and another 119 million who just forgot to ask for permits
anyone walking or driving around in many American cities without protection nowadays since the DNC unleashed their Burn, Loot, and Murder (and Antifa) gangsters and storm troopers on us
is just nuts
Auto correct strikes again! Should be ccw permit. And I am on a phone not the computer and didnt see it.
Greater than 1 in 15.
MS where I live is a Constitutional Carry State allowing both Concealed and Open Carry.
I still applied for and received a CCW so I can Carry in the other 30 or so Reciprocal States.
I wouldn’t use the sum population of the United States, aged 0 and above as the demoninator. I’d use households. Yeah, you might find a few cases with two permit holders in a family, but rarely.
IMO the Unites States Congress is the only legislative entity that is allowed to regulate firearms in *any* way.And,of course,any legislation they pass is subject to scrutiny by Federal courts...sidestepping the thousands of petty little dictators in the states’ courts.
You got time to breath? You got time to ccw. Get educated , get armed, get carry insurance, and stay safe. MAGA
ROTFL!! I was wondering.......
